If Social Security income is the only income you earned in 2016, it is not taxable or reportable, and you need not file a tax return.
If you received other taxable income, you may need to file a return, and include your Social Security income.
To enter your Social Security benefits reported on form SSA-1099 (if you have other taxable income)
- Click on Federal Taxes
- Click on Wages and Income
- Click on I'll choose what I work on
- Scroll down to Retirement Plans and Social Security
- On Social Security (SSA-1099, RRB-1099), click the start or update button
1. Would like to know if I have to file a Form SSA-1099 -Social Security Benefit Statement.
2. If I received Social Security disability and no taxes were taken out do I have to file this form?
3. My husband works so do I have to file joint or just file his tax??
file joint and list the social security payments.
you will find that the tax is lower filing joint vs. filing married-separate
if HE only files, he is obligated to file married-separate and you are obligated to file married-separate and THEN that social security payment MAY BE taxable (because the rules are different).
Yes, but you do not need to do anything to get it. See this link for the latest updates: https://www.irs.gov/coronavirus
